Cap student intake on teacher education courses!
This petition has been set up in response to the recent publicity regarding the lack of teaching jobs in Scotland. Projected figures by the Scottish Executive inform how many student places are available each year. However, we believe that these projections are inaccurate as many teachers finishing their induction year are finding themselves without a job. Please sign this petition if you would like the Scottish Executive to re-consider how many students should be trained as teachers each year. We would like to send this petition to the Scottish Executive so that they become aware of the very real problem facing many probationers. As this is an ongoing problem there is currently no closing date for this petition. Ultimately, we would like the correct information to be made available so that people considering a career in teaching can make an informed decision instead of being faced with many uncertainties (including unemployment)l. Thank you for your support in this matter.
